Quoting Gortsilo (Reply 3): they should try at MDW. I don't even know why MX pulled out of MDW.
I recall reading here once that the main reason was that it was costly to operate to/from two different airports in the same metro area. In any case, there was not much MX service from MDW, was there? It was MDW-GDL or MDW-CUN, I am not sure which of the two.
Quoting Jimbo83 (Reply 4): how long has AeroMexico been flying to San Antonio and what city/cities do they serve?
AM mainline at SAT is fairly recent. I think they started with 2 or 3x weekly flights... and it seems according to Juventus that now they are doing only one weekly flight. I am glad they will be doing this daily! I should plan a weekend shopping trip soon.
Regarding MX's interest in Gary, I don't think they will run a profitable flight. MDW was a disaster for MX, which was started only to compete against TZ's new flight to GDL. They finally realize that having two stations in Chicago was too expensive specially when MDW could not provide connections like ORD thanks to AA's hub.

I had no idea that MDW has a Port-of-Entry Facility.
Given the large Mexican population in the Great Chicagoland area, It would be of no surprise to see a Mexican airline fly to MDW, MKE or even GYY.
IMHO, If GYY is to have a Port-of-Entry facility, GYY Chicagoland-México flights would work; Same for MKE-México flights.

Quoting Juventus (Reply 17): Agree. They should look at places like PHX, ATL, PHL, not a small airport in Chicago that nobody knows about.
Well, it looks like that airport, which is actually in another state, doesn't even have an FIS, so it doesn't really make a difference. Still, I am guessing that MX would be aiming at the large Mexican population in the Chicagoland area, which dwarfs those of Atlanta and Philadelphia. As far as Phoenix goes, it is already pretty well served to Mexico, with flights to MEX, GDL, HMO, MTY, GYM, ACA, CUN, ZIH, LOS, MZT, and PVR

: Most probably to re-route them in other routes or stations due to fleet shortage. More over, the virtually extra 5 A320s system they placed in action
: Would you mind elaborate a little further?? OTOH, Tomorrow (sun oct 22nd) I will be flying MX004 MEX-JFK in C. I was surprised to find out that both
: Yes, well I refered to small incidents as issues you might have constantly all days. Perhaps your plane landed @ MEX and you have to change something
